Lagom regiO download

Lagom regiO is an agent based model for representing economic systems with several heterogeneous regions – the economy of Germany, the Mediterranean Region, the world – over a time horizon of one to several decades.

The model is based on a set of agents including firms, households, a financial system, a government, and the rest of the world. Agents are located in different regions, and their characteristics may depend on their region. Rules of thumb, imitation and mutation mechanisms govern the evolution of prices, technologies, and beliefs on the basis of which agents produce, exchange and consume goods, negotiate labor contracts or credits.

The economic activity is simulated by the execution of these actions and interactions at variable frequencies. Stochastic components in the choices of agents and in their interactions lead to a probabilistic exploration of the set of economic trajectories. A user-chosen isolation parameter determines the probabilities of agents interacting with others from their own region and from other regions.

Download:

(Please note that Java 1.5 or higher must be installed.)

Instructions:

  1. Unzip the downloaded zip-Archive (in most cases by double-click on the zip-file)

  2. Open the folder lagom_regio_2.1.4

  3. Open the HowToUse.pdf which explains the usage of the model interface (the screenshots in the pdf are taken from Lagom generiC 2.0 below, so don't get irritated by the differences).   

  4. Depending of your operating system:

      Windows: Start the model by double-clicking on Lagom_regiO_2.1.4.exe

      Mac OS: Start the model by double-clicking on Lagom_regiO_2.1.4.jar

      Linux: Start the model via terminal by using the command: java -jar Lagom_regiO_2.1.4.jar

 

 

Lagom generiC version 2.0a download

Lagom generic is an agent based model for representing economic systems – the economy of Germany, the Mediterranean Region, the world – over a time horizon of one to several decades.

This version contains material related to the working paper "Agent-based dynamics in disaggregated growth models" by Antoine Mandel, Carlo Jaeger, Steffen Fuerst, Wiebke Lass, Daniel Lincke, Frank Meissner, Federico Pablo-Marti, Sarah Wolf.
